Key Features of Hyper-V Backup Free Edition

Agentless Hyper-V Backup

A straightforward backup process with no agents involved where the Hyper-V host is directly accessed to perform image-level backups of virtual machine(s)

Hyper-V VMs in SMB and CSV

Vembu Free Hyper-V backup supports backup of VMs whose files are hosted on SMB shares and CSV.

Backup Scheduling options

Vembu offers different scheduling options starting as low as 15 minutes. Users can choose Hourly/Daily/Weekly options for the backup schedules based on how frequently the successive backups are to be performed.

Application-Aware Backup

Enabling app-aware settings checks the Microsoft’s Applications writers’ stability each time using VSS technology to take consistent snapshots of Microsoft Exchange, SQL Server, Active Directory, and SharePoint. Also, the log truncation option will automatically truncate the log files after every successful backup.

Quick VM recovery

Vembu Quick VM recovery allows instant restore of VMs ensuring an RTO of less than 15 minutes. Irrespective of the native hypervisor, the backed up Hyper-V VM data is quickly booted on VMware, Hyper-V or KVM environments directly from the backup repository.

Full VM Recovery

If the production VM gets affected due to unexpected failure or disaster, the entire VM can be permanently restored from the backup to the same or different Hyper-V server.

File Level Recovery

Without restoring the entire VM, you can restore only the individual files/folders or the individual application items of Microsoft Exchange, SharePoint, SQL and Active Directory from the image-level backup.

Cross-Platform Migration (V2V & P2V)

The backup data can be downloaded into various virtual disk formats like VHD, VHDX, VMDK, VMDK-FLAT, and IMG. With these formats, the Hyper-V VMs can be easily migrated to other hypervisors like VMware vSphere, KVM, etc.

Efficient Storage Management

VembuHIVE, the in-house file system of Vembu enhances the performance, scalability, and security of the storage through built-in features like version control & error correction, Encryption, Compression, and Deduplication.
